With movie theaters full superheroes this past summer and zombies currently dominating Sunday night television, it’s safe to say that comic books are once again en vogue. With geeks of all ages willing to spend their hard earned money on the graphic novels and monthly titles that they love, comic book creators and imprints are making it easier to snag their wares through multiple channels than ever before. One of our favorites of late has been Graphicly Comics, our Chrome Web App of the Week.
Available for use as a Chrome app, as well as on smartphones and tablets, Graphicly Comics is one of the most versatile ways for funny book aficionados to get their fix around, as it offers access to over 3000 different comic book titles, many of which are free. Should your need to feed the geek beast within demand that a premium be paid for top shelf titles like The Walking Dead or The Amazing Spiderman, picking up an issue or two is as easy as entering your Google account credentials and paying with Google Checkout. Once you’ve downloaded your purchase, it can be read offline, in fullscreen mode or at a smaller size along so that you can post your feelings on the comic’s content to share with other Graphicly Comics users or to your social media accounts.
While there are some glaring omissions from the Graphicly Comics library (DC Comics, we’re looking at you) it’s fair to say that buying, reading and sharing the comics you love has never been easier.
Be sure to check in every Monday for another edition of Maximum PC’s Chrome Web App of the Week.
